Former Company


Former Position

Executive director, Financial Institutions Group

Leading RIA Services Platform, Dynasty Financial Partners, has hired Harris Baltch as Head of Dynasty Capital Strategies (“DCS”).
Mr. Baltch will be responsible for customizing, underwriting and implementing capital solutions for clients of the firm. Prior to joining Dynasty, Harris spent nearly a decade at UBS Investment Bank where he was an Executive Director in the firm’s Financial Institutions Group. While at UBS, Harris originated, led and executed over $5 billion of strategic M&A and capital market transactions for companies in the asset and wealth management industry.
Earlier in his career, Mr. Baltch worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in the Banking and Capital Markets Group. He has over 15 years of financial services experience and earned his M.B.A. from the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University. He also received a B.S. in Accounting at Binghamton University and is a certified public accountant, registered in the State of New York.
“We are delighted to welcome Harris to Dynasty and I am confident our Dynasty Capital Strategies initiatives, under Harris’ leadership, will further fuel our clients in their various growth initiatives,” said Ed Swenson, COO of Dynasty Financial Partners. “At a time when many firms might be pulling back or moving to be more defensive, Dynasty is growing its resources to help our clients win disproportionally going forward.”
Now approaching its 10-year anniversary, Dynasty Financial Partners is a leading brand name in the wealth management industry that has become synonymous with powering RIA independence. According to Dynasty CEO Shirl Penney, "Dynasty Financial Partners and our advisor network is growing. In the current environment, we are seeing increased advisor interest in outsourcing and in advisors seeking capital to grow organically and through M&A. We also expect more employee advisors to consider independence to keep a larger share of their revenue and a number of them may seek some liquidity as part of the move. Dynasty is well positioned with a strong balance sheet to extend to its RIA clients to fund their various capital needs. This is a great time for great advisors."
According to Mr. Baltch, “Innovative capital solutions can support a variety of strategic growth opportunities that have long been sought after by RIAs, but have historically been challenged by a high cost, onerous covenants and lots of paperwork. I am excited to join Dynasty and work with an exceptional management team to tackle these issues head on and build out a thoughtful product offering tailored to our client needs.”
Dynasty Capital Strategies is a specialized financing program that provides bespoke liquidity solutions for RIAs to start up, expand and scale their businesses.
